Ridgewood Radio features concert recordings by adventurous bands and experimental musicians and restored archival tapes from private and institutional collections captured at venues large and small across the five boroughs of New York. It is produced by David Weinstein and Outpost Artists Resources operating out of the Ridgewood section of Queens, NY, where you'll find more yellow bricks than on the road to Oz and the cemetery of your choice is never more than a few blocks from home.

Hello David, Ruth, james and all
Avatar 3:01pm weinstein:

It's all safe after this, James (if you believe....)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:02pm Stanley:

Not safe. It's a mutated form of those Mouse Boys!
Avatar 3:02pm weinstein:

Welcome, Fred. Here we go!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:03pm listener james from westwood:

Afternoon, David, Ruth, and everyone!

Avatar 3:09pm weinstein:

@Stanley, I'm thinking the Furby may indeed be a form of mouse, now that you mention it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:10pm fred:

Are Talk Normal still active? I liked them, even saw them once
Avatar 3:11pm weinstein:

From what I understand, Talk Normal is not active.
Avatar 3:13pm weinstein:

Hey Steveo! What concerts should we tell folks about this week?
Avatar 3:17pm Sem:

Good afternoon, David, Ruth, Ridgewood-ers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:18pm steveo:

depends which ones there are!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:20pm Webhamster Henry:

Sprint bought Electronics Hut and they went out of business. I used to get my Unrealistic radios and tape recorders from them.
Avatar 3:22pm weinstein:

Welcome Sem and Henry! Did Sprint kill the Hut or did they just do a Radio Shak?
Avatar 3:24pm weinstein:

If you like the multimedia noise scene, tonight is David Linton's birthday bash at H0L0.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:36pm fred:

Nice set, thanks
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:38pm listener james from westwood:

I'd not heard of Gold Dime but I'm glad to have learned of them and to have heard Ambro's wild pipes!
Avatar 3:42pm weinstein:

I think this is a very solid band and Ambro works incredibly hard, plus the performance is compelling to watch.
Avatar 3:43pm northguineahills:

Min Xiao Fen did an excellent album w/ Derek Bailey.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:44pm fred:

I'd love to see Min Xiao Fen someday
Avatar 3:46pm weinstein:

Min Xiao Fen did a music to the silent Chinese classic film, The Goddess last Sunday at Roulette. I bet she tours it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Webhamster Henry:

I like this one, it's very busy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:56pm melinda:

hi everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:58pm Webhamster Henry:

My friend Kevin Hobby has a completely different thing called a hyperpiano.
I made a sample instrument out of it.
Avatar 4:02pm weinstein:

Hi Melinda, welcome. And Henry I'm taking a peek at this now....
Avatar 4:05pm weinstein:

Oh, that will take my full attention.... after the show....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Webhamster Henry:

There are a bunch of compositions done with it for a presentation last year. I actually turned myself into Gregorian chanting choir, singing that theme.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm steveo:

electric trombone = yes please
Avatar 4:20pm weinstein:

Ah yes, Dino was the master. And then he gave it up for his newly beloved lap steel!
Avatar 4:23pm northguineahills:

Lea Bertrucci got a full page review in the latest Wire! (enthusiastically happy to see a friend of mine get noticed).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm fred:

@ngh: Wow! I saw her twice and loved both (very different) sets
Avatar 4:27pm weinstein:

Bertucci is a bit of a chameleon, which I love. Go Lea!
Avatar 4:29pm geezerette:

Hey, David,Ruth and buddies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm melinda:

hi geeze
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:30pm steveo:

really loving this. unfortunately, I was afraid to go to brooklyn in 1995.
Avatar 4:31pm weinstein:

Hey gzette, always a pleasure!
Avatar 4:32pm weinstein:

Ha! This was recorded in the original Tribeca loft.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:34pm fred:

I love this set
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm steveo:

oh well then I wish you'd told me about it :)
Avatar 4:35pm northguineahills:

Not Familiar w J.A. Deane.
Avatar 4:36pm weinstein:

Thanks, Fred. It's nearly 58 minutes and I tried to excerpt it but just got seduced by its progression.
Avatar 4:37pm weinstein:

Look for J.A. Deane on Butch Morris albums and Jon Hassell stuff from the 80s-90s. He's also on the original Zorn Cobra double CD.
Avatar 4:40pm geezerette:

"Seduced by progression." A perfume, or a band name...?
Avatar 4:42pm weinstein:

Maybe a short story title? Though I do love the idea of "Progression by Dior".
Avatar 4:43pm geezerette:

Ha! Exactly!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm steveo:

"j'aime cet set"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:45pm fred:

Dior? I'm a Chanel guy
Avatar 4:45pm geezerette:

There was a scent called Samsara! Couldn't believe that! Remember window displays driving past Saks.
Avatar 4:47pm geezerette:

Hey, Fred! Steveo! Melinda! Everybody! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:48pm doctorjazz:

Hi! busy, but listening and enjoying the show, thanks David!
Avatar 4:50pm weinstein:

Thanks, djazz. Understood. I'm multi-tasking too!
Avatar 4:57pm weinstein:

And Dino brings it home... this was a pleasure to share. Thank you all!
Avatar 4:57pm Sem:

Following along at home with non-trivial delight. Thanks, David and Ruth. See you, and all, next time around.
Avatar 4:57pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Classic collages coming up, some scary, plenty of screaming in the second hour: wfmu.org...
Avatar 4:58pm geezerette:

David, what a pleasure to listen.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm fred:

Thanks David and Ruth, this was a gem of a show
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm listener james from westwood:
